Before you continue reading, this is specifically for the people that are in search for a genuine relationship. If you’re looking around to casually date then this post is probably not for you. But you’ll never know if the one will show up through casual dating. Either way, I hope you’ll get something from this.
1. Be Patient
This is the biggest obstacle I see which is why I’m mentioning it first. Are you patiently waiting for your partner to appear in your life or are you desperately searching? If it’s the latter, you’re on the wrong path. Hopelessly seeking for one will attract the wrong people. You need to be clear with your intentions because what you think and how you interact may differ.
When people see that you’re desperate, it shows a lack of self-love and a hint of selfishness. Speaking from personal experience, this is a magnet for selfish people. The second tip helps you with this issue.
2. Work on Yourself
Everyone is attracted to people with ambitions and goals. If you want to find someone with those qualities, you have to become dependable also. Focus on taking care of yourself first before pursuing a relationship. You will radiate when you’re content being single. Reading and exercising are great habits to start off with to boost your confidence.
Remember that if you’re not happy single, you won’t be happy in a relationship.
3. Expose Yourself
I don’t mean participating in a naked 5k race, (although you’re welcome to if it personally makes you happy). What I do mean is to go out on local events posted on Facebook, Instagram, or invites from friends. Be yourself, humble, and vulnerable. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. You want someone that truly loves you for you, not a fake persona you made.
Don’t be scared to show your personality. You shouldn’t take it personally if they don’t like you. If anything, you saved time for the both of you from the start.
4. Be Kind to Others
Compassion and kindness are priceless qualities. Care for people and they will flock to you. Treat others the way you want to be treated. You’ll have a better chance of finding someone that respects you and sincerely cares for you. The same person that will stick with you even through the dark times. They might be able to support you financially, but supporting you emotionally is just as important.
